Women’s Volleyball Named #1 Overall Seed in NCAA Tournament

The dominance never seems to end for Penn State Women’s Volleyball. Yesterday, Russ Rose’s team was named the #1 overall seed of this year’s NCAA tournament.

The Nittany Lions (29-2), who won the National Championship four of the last five years, have been placed in the West Lafayette regional and open up against Binghamton (13-17) on 7:30 p.m. this Friday in Rec Hall.

If the Nittany Lions prevail on Friday, they will take on the the winner of the match between Yale and Bowling Green on Saturday. Same place, same time.

The bracket sets up nicely for Rose’s squad. Three Big Ten teams (Purdue, Minnesota, and Ohio State) are featured in the West Lafayette regional, but Penn State is 6-0 against those teams, sweeping them on four occasions. The Nebraska Cornhuskers are the only team in the tournament that beat Penn State this season. If both teams were to win their respective regions, they would face off in the Final Four in Louisville, KY.

The Nittany Lions have been almost perfect in the last month, dropping only two sets in their last eight matches. They hope to make quick work of the first rounds and seal their spot at the West Lafayette regionals next weekend.

Tickets for Friday’s and Saturday’s potential matchups can be purchased at Rec Hall at a of cost $8 for adults and $6 for students.
